We love celebrities who are honest about what they eat, especially at Christmas time and Rihanna is no stranger to telling us the truth.

The award-winning singer opened up about her Christmas plans and what she'll be indulging in over the holiday period. 

Talking to Closer magazine she said her favorite comfort foods to eat over Christmas were mac 'n' cheese, Shepherd's pie and rum punch.

Rihanna usually spends her time in the US but she will spend the holidays, with family, back in her home country of Barbados. She went on to explain how, like us, the decorations are an all-important part of feeling festive.

"It's kind of a cliché, but there is just something I love about decorating the tree. It's just one of those traditions where you can declare Christmas has started as soon as the tree goes up."

We totally feel you Rihanna! 

But instead of lounging on the sofa, like most of us, watching Christmas movies on Netflix—it looks like she'll be swapping it for a Barbadian beach—how lucky.

Rhianna went on to say: "It's important to be with friends and family — but I feel at such peace when I am there. It is the most beautiful place, with incredible, beaches, food and people."

No doubt she'll be spending Christmas with her new man, rapper A$AP Rocky who, earlier this year, she finally confirmed she was dating.

Once she's enjoyed her relaxing holiday, the Grammy award-winning star has her sights set on a great new year—with not only a Caribbean cookbook on the horizon (we're salivating at the thought of it!), but Rhianna has also mentioned her goal to take her 'music and [...] brands to a different level' in 2021. 

Will 2021 be the year patient fans finally get their dreams fulfilled with new music from Riri? We're sending positive vibes and manifesting it so!
